Textbook: Delta’s Key to the Next Generation TOEFL Test: Advanced Skill Practice for the iBT, Author: Nancy Gallagher (required)
This course is designed to provide instruction, study strategies and intensive drill in the four main skills tested on the new, internet-based TOEFL (iBT): Reading (including vocabulary), Listening, Speaking, and Writing.
Differences between the traditional paper and pencil TOEFL, the previous computer-based TOEFL (CBT), and the new iBT will be discussed.
Students will spend some time in the computer lab, becoming familiar with the internet-based TOEFL, learning the computer techniques necessary for the test, and practicing the various types of questions which are tested on the iBT.
In order to cover all the material in the course adequately, students will be expected to do a substantial amount of homework each week.
Note: To receive Certificates of Completion, students must have at least 75% attendance for the course (no more than 5 absences).
